I missed this superb capture of an insect drama: the copulating female looking like she is making a meal of another male at the same time as she is being fertilised!
A unique shot captured with fine sharpness, from an excellent POV and well composed among the grass stems.
Well done Haraprasan!
Thanks for sharing this one,

Cool Harprasan..a robber threesome!
I've never seen this before, most likely never will again :)
I was not present on TN for almost 1 month and today I see that a lot of great pictures were presented - and this one is a perfect example!
Fantastic presentation! Love in Asilidae flies and... dead of asilid fly (the prey belongs to the some family as hunter!). I have never seen similar photo, so bravo for showing a really unique capture!
My best greetings from Lodz,

What a great capture Haraprassan.
You were so lucky to find this scene,and so clever to record it so well.
The composition is great and the exposure,colour and details are very good.
An excellent macro.

What a busy scene!
So much happening...well done shot...good light, good details, great! :)
What a downer. I mean from the point of view of the robber fly being pinned to the grass blade. No victory trophy for him today as it seems like he was robbed from an opportunity to perform his most vital and rudimentary purpose as a male representative of the species. Is this behaviour part of the reason why they are called robber flies (chuckle)?
An excellent colourful shot showing these insects performing a very natural act. Survival is the game and the strongest specimen is the one whose genes are being carried forwards. The composition is lovely, the colours are stunning, the sharpness is spot-on showing all the wonderful details, and you made brilliant use of the available light.
First class work and TFS.
